Windows 7: I am having a problem with my ATI Radeon Xpress Series graphics.

I am having a problem with my ATI Radeon Xpress Series graphics.

Iím having a problem with graphics on my laptop. Whenever I switch to full screen, either watching a movie or playing a game, the screen starts flashing and jerking. The end result is the movie or game goes back to the minimized size and I get an error message. The message states that my display driver failed and was restored. Iíve also noticed the icons in the upper right corner (minimize, restore, close) stop functioning.
My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite A135-52276. The operating system is Windows 7 Ultimate-Service Pack 1-32 bit. The graphics information shows ATI Radeon Xpress Series (0x5A62). The Total Available Grphics Memory: 831 MB. The current driver is from ATI Technologies, driver date 12-01-08, Version 8.561.0.0. Resolution is 1280 x 800.
Iíve tried Windows Update to check for updated drivers-tells me what I have is the best choice. Iím hoping you could help me-itís really frustrating. Thank you.

Welcome to Seven Forums Snoopster03.
Windows update is often behind with drivers. How old is the laptop? The ATI designation indicates 3-4 years? You can go the Toshiba support site and see if they have a newer driver available for your model. Most laptops have specially created drivers which should be used for best performance.

The newest Toshiba GPU driver for your system is Version: 8.383.1.1, Release Date: 2009-09-03.

Some times the oem drivers perform better than the suppliers drivers. Newer gpu drivers are not always better performers.

Hi Snoopster03,

It seems to be the video driver failure on the system. You should remove the video drivers by following the link below:

AMD Catalyst Un-install Utility

And then you can download the fresh video drivers from this link:

If the issue recently occurred after any updates or software installed then you can also perform a system restore:

System Restore

Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.
